NYS Breast Cancer Survivors Sought For Hotline
Published: February 22nd, 2024

NEW YORK – The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer hotline and support program is seeking breast cancer survivors, both women and men, throughout New York State to train as volunteers for the hotline.

The ZOOM training, each session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., is being held on four consecutive Mondays beginning March 11, then March 18, March 25 and April 1. Volunteers are asked to commit to all four sessions.

The hotline was established in 1980 by women who had been in a support group and wanted to help others. Today it is the oldest breast cancer hotline in the country. Says Lori F, a hotline volunteer since 2022, “It is an indescribable feeling to give hope to someone who feels hopeless.”
